Jolo turns 9 today….

A few days back and in preparation sa mga gusto nya sa birthday nya, eto ang mga sinasabi ni Jolo sa Inay nya:
- Pili pili sya ng cake and he wants his picture on it, asking Wena to pre-order the cake at baka daw matagal gawin hehe, eto naman sis di nakinig so kahapon lang nag order ng cake. It seems Jolo is right, so wala picture yung cake nya…
- Me pag sasabi na sa Tagaytay na lang daw sila pumunta sa birthday nya
- Sana daw maka absent naman sya sa school sa birthday nya
- Kung puede daw sya mag treat sa 5 classmates nya sa Mcdo
- Sana naman daw e wag na damit ang matanggap nya gift, sana daw e iba naman. Tanong naman si Wena, “anu iba gift na gusto mo?”, ang sagot “yung iba naman gaya ng panyo”…hehe

As today is his birthday, don’t know which one of his wishes will come true.
Anyway, they will have a small celebration this evening.

Happy 9th Birthday Jolo M….

We love you…and be good….

Me: Hi Jolo, Tita ‘to, happy birthday!!
Jolo: eh di pa kaya?!
Me: para ako mauna mag greet sa ‘yo ng “happy birthday”…
Jolo: oo nga ano!
Me: na mi-miss mo ba sina Vince?
Jolo: si Ian lang….
Me: eh bakit di mo miss si Nini & Vince?
Jolo: makulit kasi yung dalawa na yun…..
Me: si Ninison di mo miss??
Jolo: eh sige si Nini at Ian miss ko….
Me: eh si Vince??
Jolo: kakulit kasi ni Vince sa akin…
Me: hinahanap ka daw ni Vince, sabi sa Papa e “asan si Kuya Jolo”
(dumalaw kasi sila Itay sa Cavite)
Jolo: oo nga daw, naiyak daw at nahabol….
Me: kaya nga, tapos di mo miss….
Jolo: sige na nga miss ko na silang lahat……
(sabay tawag sa Inay nya)

Get together....










As agreed we had a little get together at home.

This is to partially celebrate our Wedding Anniversary / my birthday and at the same time have some JES friends came over for the first time.
Though a bit late on the date..still it's better late than never daw, di ba?

heniwey, the dinner / party lasts until mid night. Siempre di mawawalan ng kantahan, pataasan daw ng score. Ang saya din...

For the menu, I asked someone to cook for me and I prepared some dishes.

All in all, it's an enjoyable get-together...

House Renovation Day 37




Progress photos sent by Wena:
Terrace slab was casted and upper wall almost complete. Window grill installed (we ask them to revise and install at least one escape route for safety reasons). Ground floor room already partitioned / finishing in progress.

At this rate the roof will probably be installed before end of the month.

3 Day Diet...

We tried the 3-day diet that i have found in the net. It works on food chemical combination daw. It's a bit of sacrifice kahit na it's only three days lalo na if you like to eat out.

Well after the 3 days, Labs lost 2-3kg and me?! well, did not even shed 1kg, humupa lang ako ng konti...pulos water retention lang yata yung sa akin e...sus...

So now the next step in losing weight??...buy a treadmill??

Progress photos sent by Wena:
As finally the partition and stairs layout satisfies both the oldies, about 100 hollow blocks were demolished to re-do the final partitions. Patay tayo sa change order dyan hehehe…
Here’s the new layout:

House Renovation Day 25








Progress photos sent by Wena:
Second floor wall and stairs in progress.

There’s some discussion on the partition/layouts fort the four rooms on the second floor and the stairs location. Looks like some minor demolition will be done to accommodate the changes.
